    I did not have the honor to meet your mother but I have a pretty good idea of who she was by the way YOU treat others with compassion, caring and doing what’s right those are things that are shown to us by our parents and that is how we know that your Mom had to be an amazing lady. God took away her pain and she now flies with the angels. My prayers go with you as you walk this difficult path. Helen
